Youth programs

Children enjoying Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District youth programs.

An Oregon Community Foundation Grant of $50,000 has been awarded to the Sunset Empire Park and Recreation District for K-12 summer programming, providing funding for staffing, summer camp and field trips. The park district serves Clatsop County, which is considered a child care desert. This year the need for child care in the community has been even more critical as families are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and with the closing of a child care facility in Cannon Beach.

The park district’s summer program in the Sunset Recreation Center serves 45 children in part-day and full-day programs over the course of nine weeks.
